Valentine Victory!

13 Feb

Ever since the kids started exchanging valentines, I’ve been a buy-the-ready-to-go-box kind of mom. (Nothing wrong it!) The kids were happy. They got to pick out their favorite character or design and have a treat to share. I’m sure their buddies didn’t mind. They got the treat. I was happy. It was quick and easy for me and the kids were happy. But this year, I saw something I fell in love with and looked like even the uncraftiest of uncrafty people (me) could craft. Especially when I saw there was a template I could use!

"Caped Cute-sader" from

I was still a little nervous when Nia and I sat down to start creating but after a few traces and Nia’s smile through all of it, I knew they were coming out great!

Faster than an owl trying to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop

Once I felt like I could conquer this cardstock and glue craft, I granted Nia’s wishes to make these heart flowers.

"Friendship Blossoms" from

Ours didn’t come out exactly like the website picture …

Drawing the heart was tough!

Well, Nia loved them so that’s all that matters to me. Hope your Valentine’s Day is “super” and full of “bud-dies!”

"See, mommy? It looks like a flower!"

    They look wonderful! We made the caped tootsie roll pops too, and I had a hard time getting our tape to stick to the waxed wrapper for the goggles. I should’ve switched to packing tape or something more sturdy. I love the flower ones too – so cute!

      Thank you! We actually used a thin craft glue stick and that seemed to hold all the cardstock really well.
